New partnership aims at further improving the sustainability of tuna

A partnership agreement has been signed between Earthworm Foundation and the International Pole and Line Foundation (IPNLF) to further the cause of sustainable tuna fishing.

IPNLF and Earthworm Foundation have a shared vision: a sustainable seafood industry, from fishery through the supply chain. Together, they will work collaboratively to engage the French market in creating stronger and more responsible management of tuna stocks globally, promoting sustainable fishing practices as well as improving working conditions for employees, both at sea and on land.The partnership will also see the strengthening of The Tuna Protection Alliance (TUPA), which is aimed at becoming a driving force in the canned tuna industry, binding producers, retailers, and fleets together, as well as working to adopt better fishing practices and management to restore, balance and safeguard resources for future generations.

IPNLF works to support sustainable fisheries, forging change through practical fishery projects and stakeholder corporation to highlight the social, economic, and environmental benefits of one-by-one fishing. IPNLF now has offices all over the globe, with member fisheries ranging from locations as diverse as St. Helena, the Maldives, South Africa, Indonesia, and the USA. Their expertise has continued to grow, becoming one of the most respected and well-regarded organisations working in the sustainable tuna industry.

Earthworm Foundation has a history of working with organisations and governments around the globe to protect valuable and degraded habitats. In 2018, they solidified their mission to cultivate life in forests, oceans and communities around the world. This involves working with retailers such as E.Leclerc, Les Mousquetaires and Casino to ensure responsible fishing practices and supply chain management.

In 2018, Earthworm Foundation launched TUPA, which brings together a collection of organisations committed to the responsible management of tuna fisheries and the promotion of sustainable fishing practices that are linked to the French canned tuna market.

This partnership will be an important step forward in helping to create a sustainable supply chain in the French tuna fishing sector. Through the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding), which is initially effective for a period of two years, the parties have agreed to the following commitments:

■      Create a focused partnership to collaboratively engage in activities and share information that furthers the promotion of sustainable tuna fishing.

■      Work collaboratively to improve the traceability and transparency of canned one-by-one tuna products.

■      To exchange knowledge about each other’s projects and activities, as well as exchange the contact information of pole-and-line fisheries that would be applicable for such projects.

■      Work together to improve the knowledge of the sourcing credentials of pole-and-line caught tuna in the French marketplace.
